Allogeneic Blood Stem Cell Transplantation and Adoptive Immunotherapy for Hodgkin's Disease
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if fludarabine, melphalan and gemcitabine followed by transplantation of stem cells (blood-forming cells) as well as immune cells (lymphocytes), collected from a matched related (i.e. a sibling) or unrelated donor, or a mismatched related donor, can help to control Hodgkin's disease. The safety of the treatment will also be studied.
Drug: Antithymocyte Globulin
Procedure: Allogeneic Stem Cell Infusion
Drug: Filgrastim (G-CSF)

Experimental: Gemcitabine + Fludarabine + Melphalan
Gemcitabine 800 mg/m^2 intravenous (IV) over 30 minutes for one day; Fludarabine 33 mg/m^2 IV for 4 days; Melphalan 70 mg/m^2 IV over 30 minutes for 2 days. Antithymocyte Globulin 2 mg/kg IV for 2 days before stem cell transplantation. If receiving transplant from matched unrelated donor (not blood relative), a mismatched related donor (a blood relative, but not a full match), or receiving a cord blood transplant, infusion of stem cells on Day 0. Tacrolimus given IV over 24 hours following infusion; beginning Day +7 Filgrastim (G-CSF) injection under skin once daily and Methotrexate IV Days +1, +3, +6, and +11.
